War with Iran?

Is war with Iran next? I published an article today that there are indications of increased military focus by the U.S. on Iran - our reservists being shipped to Iraq are being told their job is to "intimidate" Iran. It wouldn't take much to turn this into a shooting war.

Yet, Iran is not Saddam. They are playing a good game of "tit for tat" --i.e., you take our people hostage we'll take some of yours hostage. Note this article that a top Iranian captured in Iraq has been released.

Want to bet that the Brits will be released soon?

If we go to war with Iran, Americans will pay a high price that will make Iraq look cheap.

The bigger threat is Al Qaeda that may well get a nuke before Iran does. Iran has a lot to lose by using one; Al Qaeda, which has no territory, missiles or cities, has nothing to lose...
